Are You Being Called By Coachella Valley Collection Service?* Here’s What You Need to Know

If you’re being harassed by debt collectors, you aren’t alone. Every day, people across the U.S. are stalked, harassed, and yelled at because they are unable to pay their debts. If you’re dealing with a collection agency that treats you like you’re less than human, you can fight back.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

No matter how much money you owe, collection agencies have to obey the law when pursuing it. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits the use of underhanded and hostile collection tactics like the following:

  • Yelling and using profane or abusive language
  • Adding illegal service fees to the original debt
  • Calling you at all hours of the day and night
  • Using an autodialer to call you
  • Threatening to ruin your credit for life
  • Contacting you directly when they know that you have an attorney
